The pelvic floor is a powerful set of muscles that sits like a hammock between your tailbone and pubic bone, supporting your core and the organs of your lower abdomen. When it comes to sex, pelvic floor exercises (aka Kegels) build muscle strength, increase sensation and boost blood flow to the vagina, which in turn helps you control those muscles and experience stronger orgasms (which are actually good for you, by the way).

Trust us, it’s science

Yes, it’s true! Studies have shown that women with a stronger pelvic floor have more intense and longer lasting orgasms. This is because it’s the pelvic floor muscles that contract during orgasm. Simply put, strengthen your pelvic floor and you can strengthen your orgasms.

Regular Kegel training increases blood flow to the vagina, which improves lubrication and sensitivity. And let’s not forget that research has also found that pelvic floor exercise training led to greater sexual desire, arousal, and overall sexual satisfaction!

Learn your body

As if this isn’t enough reason to workout your pelvic floor on a regular basis, women using Elvie Trainer often tell us how much more confident they feel in bed now that they know their bodies more intimately. Call us soppy, but this might be our favourite reason to get kinky with Kegels! After all, we have it on good authority that confidence is sexy.

Body confidence is all the rage, but what about self-knowledge of our bodies? It seems clear to us that getting to know yourself and your most intimate muscles is a good place to start.  

It’s a vagina… or is it?

Lots of women still don’t understand their vaginas or know their vagina from their vulva. Of the new mums we surveyed, almost 70% said that they don’t even use the word “vagina” to describe the body part, preferring a variety of elusive alternatives such as their “bits”, “down there”, “front bottom” and, two respondents (with a taste for religious satire) even chose “Mary”. But is it even a vagina they’re talking about? Well that depends on whether they’re talking about the part that sits inside the body (vagina) or outside (vulva).

Kegels are the gift that keeps on giving

As if the possibility of mind-blowing orgasms isn’t enough to convince you, think about the fact that just five minutes, three times a week could give you a strong core, limit leaks and keep your pelvic floor in tiptop shape for life too.

Workout now and you could orgasm later.
